2019 Premium Rate Rise

The Federal Minister for Health has recently released the health fund premium increases for April 2019. Doctors’ Health Fund is one of only five funds to have an increase below 3% in 2019 and has recorded below industry average premium increases for the last seven years.

As part of Avant Mutual, a member-owned not-for-profit organisation, we aim to keep premiums as low as possible for our members, whilst providing quality products and expert service. We are proud that our 3.5% average increase over the last seven years is below the industry average which exceeds 5% per annum.

As usual, the increases apply from 1 April 2019 and we will be notifying all members early in the New Year.
